Library Journal's Top Ten Titles Print Email

Jacket covers from three books on the LJ Top Ten list - The Panopticon, The Searchers, and A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Library Journal (LJ) is arguably the most trusted and respected journal for the library community; each year, their reviewers evaluate 8000+ books, ebooks, audiobooks, videos/DVDs, databases, systems and websites!  (Did you know that our library director Christine Perkins is a long-time reviewer for LJ? Click here to read her review from the October 1st issue.)  Their end-of-the-year lists are particularly good and usually include plenty of titles not found on other more commercial lists.  Starting with their Top Ten list, we'll feature other LJ "best of" lists through the end of the year.  Of these top ten titles, LJ says that together they "form a picture of humanity’s struggle against injustices great and small but also kept us up late turning the pages."  Enjoy!
